Thread subject: Drift Migration
Name Date Message
Marie 08/30/04 01:12 am For anyone who wants to understand more about bird migration just type in the above in Google search and see what comes up. Very informative info. Tiger, as a scientist you might like this. Having discusssed this topic in depth with my Scottish friend who has been studying Sandwich Terns for many many years it is amazing to know that Migration is understood to be purely instictive. This phenomena is thought to be affected by the magnetic fields of the earth, as well as weather influences. There is also a number of researchers that believe Memory is conveyed through the GENES. This is why most young birds that have never migrated before, point themselves in the right direction and show up where their parents usually winter. Most interesting theory.
